Alkahest is an exciting new first-person medieval fantasy action RPG developed by Push On. This game promises to be a spiritual successor to Dark Messiah of Might & Magic while drawing influences from Dishonored and Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Set in the tumultuous kingdom of Kadanor, you play as the youngest son of a minor lord, navigating through power struggles among three competing houses. The game emphasizes dynamic combat, allowing you to use the environment to your advantage—think dropping trees on foes or pushing them off cliffs. Alchemy plays a significant role, replacing traditional magic systems with customizable throwables, drinkables, weapon oils, and traps. Stealth and direct combat are both viable strategies in this immersive, medieval world. Alkahest is currently in development for PC, with more updates to follow.
